(Victor Valley)– High school seniors, college students hoping to transfer and all others interested in attending Cal State San Bernardino beginning in fall 2014 must file their applications during the priority application period for 2014-2015 to receive full admission consideration.
The application period for the 2014-2015 school year runs from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30, 2013.
“We anticipate that we will have a record number of applicants for the 2014-2015 academic year, but we will only accept fall 2014 admission applications during the Oct. 1-Nov. 30 time window,” said Olivia Rosas, associate vice president for enrollment services at CSUSB. “The application period for next year starts now, and it’s crucial that students fill out their applications completely and pay attention to all of the deadlines. We will do all we can to accommodate every student who is eligible.
Those who apply during the Oct. 1-Nov. 30 priority application period must qualify academically and complete all of the necessary requirements for admission.
Students interested in applying to Cal State San Bernardino can find more information at the university’s admissions office website at http://admissions.csusb.edu or can contact CSUSB’s Office of Admissions and Student Recruitment to set up an appointment with a counselor. The office number is (909) 537-5188.
All applicants can complete their applications by logging onto www.CSUMentor.edu. CSUMentor is a Web-based system that helps students plan and apply to the CSU online. It is designed to help students and their families learn about the CSU system, select a CSU campus, finance their higher education and apply for admission. The site offers technical support, course-check and open and closed campus information.
Rosas recommends that students pay close attention to all of the admissions information they receive from the university, such as deadlines, event dates and the additional documents they need to finalize their application. Students are strongly encouraged to take the entrance exams such as the SAT or ACT as well as placement tests such as the Entry Level Math exam (ELM) and the English Placement Test (EPT) as soon as possible to improve their chances of getting admitted to the university and know what classes they will take when they get here.
“The next step after getting admitted to the university is to secure financial assistance in the form of grants, scholarships, loans and so on,” she added.
